Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day to all!

On a day focused on romance, while people scurry to get last minute gifts for their partners, distributions didn’t stop for our team at Care4Calais.

What we didn’t expect was a group of young refugees who turned up with a bunch of roses and some sweets to give to the female volunteers on our team! One by one, the girls in our group were handed a fresh rose, a sweet or a chocolate.

Who would have thought these young guys sleeping rough in a park in Brussels, with very little to their name, few possessions and often little hope could be so kind? They knew Care4Calais would be distributing today so did what they could to make our volunteers smile.

How many of us can say we received roses or chocolates today? Thanks to the kindness and heart of some refugees, our volunteers can.
